Maya - Pullip Doll
Jeanne Lanvin founded the fashion house we know as Lanvin in 1889. In 2001, Alber Elbaz took over as artistic director and the house has never been the same since. His designs grace the red carpet and hang in fashionista's closets everywhere. Along with the gorgeous gowns, he incorporates cute "Little Miss Lanvin" illustrations on some cheeky t-shirts and sweaters. Now they're stepping into 3-D. Lanvin has partnered up with the porcelain company Franz to make "Little Miss Lanvin" dolls. Each season there will be 6 new limited edition porcelain dolls, with just 800 released. Priced at $345 each, they each come packaged in Lanvin's signature pale blue box. The idea is homage to Jeanne Lanvin's part in the post-war Theatre de la Mode show, in which French couturiers showcased their designs through miniature dolls, due to the lack of fabric. Spring '08 and Spring '09 dolls are out now, and the newest collection will be out soon. Check www.franzcollection.com to find out where you can buy them!

It's hard to mention Erin Fetherston without thinking of her whimsical and fantastical take on fashion. Her Fall 2009 collection was no different, but was a definite departure from her usual wispy ethereal dresses her devoted fans love. Instead, Fetherston threw in a little bit harlequin, toy soldier, and wild carnival themes. It may seem a little dark and sinister, but everything from the structured teacup shaped skirts to clown striped tights still had classic Erin Fetherston charm. A standout look was a black swing coat with a large bow accent and black leather trim accessorized with black leather driving gloves. Wondering who made those glittery animal masks worn atop the models' heads? They were the work of Fetherston's fiance, Hedi Ferjani. Black-red lipstick and layered crimped hair pulled into a loose bun are some of the ways to incorporate Fetherston's living doll lifestyle without breaking your bank this coming fall.
